The Parish Council has suspended further public meetings in line with Government advice. The business of the Council will be conducted under a Temporary Scheme of Delegation passed by resolution at an Extraordinary Meeting on 20th March 2020.
The Parish Council RESOLVED that in response to the Covid-19 outbreak in the UK and in the event that it is not possible to convene a meeting of the council in a reasonable time, the Clerk shall have delegated authority to make decisions on behalf of the council where such decision cannot reasonably be deferred and must be made in order to comply with a commercial or statutory deadline. This will be carried out where possible by consultation with members by electronic means or telephone. The clerk will further consult with the chairman for guidance as necessary. The delegation does not extend to matters expressly reserved to the council in legislation or in its Standing Orders or Financial Regulations. Any decisions made under this delegation must be recorded in writing and must be published in accordance with the relevant regulations. This delegated authority ceases upon the first meeting of the council after the council meeting at which the delegation was put in place.
This page will hold details of all of the decisions that are made and the reasons for them. For Planning Applications that have a set timescale for response the Parish Council will issue an email advising residents of the application and give details of how residents can make comments to the Parish Council should they wish to do so. The email will include a link to the actual application to enable residents go view the application on the District Council website.
